Allyn Scura EyewearWhen I was younger there were three Rs to worry about: reading, writing, and 'rithmetic. However in this eco-conscious modern age companies like eyewear brand Allyn Scura pay attention to four new Rs: refrain, reduce, reuse, and recycle.

The eyewear company does all it can to operate in a green way. It offsets its carbon emissions through its partnerships with ASEC and NativeEnergy, designs its products in a solar-powered studio, and eliminates paper waste in its offices. Some of that paper waste is shredded to make an eco-friendly alternative to traditional foam packing peanuts. Any extra frames find a new home at the Southern California School of Optometry.

While Allyn Scura creates many new sunglasses and spectacles, those modern designs aren't our only option. The label also has a vast collection of glasses from the 1700s to the 1980s, which are just waiting for sun lovers striving for an authentic vintage look.

And when your shades are looking a little worse for wear, don't throw them away. Allyn Scura invites its customers to send in used sunglasses. The label absorbs the shipping fee, so there's no cost to consumers, and then sends them on to charities working in third-world nations.
